I am taking medicines prescribed by him but I am looking for some lifestyle changes that will better my condition. Please tell me How could we reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol?
@vickey Hello, both high blood pressure and cholesterol are related. When the body can’t clear cholesterol from the bloodstream, that excess cholesterol can deposit along artery walls. When arteries become stiff and narrow from deposits, the heart has to work overtime to pump blood through them. This raises blood pressure. Here are a few lifestyle changes that will manage high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Eat healthily, exercise regularly, reduce weight, reduce sodium intake, quit alcohol and smoking.
